Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! (If you're on Goodreads, I've included a button to add the book to your list just below the teaser!)
Today's teaser is from a Harlequin Romance, which I don't read too often, but I was looking for a one-and-done kind of read. I'm not ready to jump into another series just yet and I wanted something light and romantic (and relatively mindless). Hopefully this book will be just what I'm looking for...
"Damn that woman. She made me promise. But it was a deathbed promise, and I said the words hoping her demise would absolve me of action."
"You promised to marry me, hoping your mother would die?" She stared back in horror.
